Community volunteers and UPLIFT Participants are matched as a Co-Pilot pairing and meet weekly to work towards the Participant's goals.  Volunteers serve as a liaison between their Co-Pilot and resources in the community, advocating for their success. 

The priority of this program is to ensure that Participants have the necessary tools to access resources, whether connecting them with medical services or helping obtain required documentation for employment and housing.  The consistency and support that of the Co-Pilot pairing will bring a familiarity and personal touch to the relationship. 

Participants will be empowered to achieve their goals through a mutually beneficial relationship, ultimately resulting in them overcoming unique barriers.
